: because it's not about him. during the election, he was a lion. man, he tore mitt romney's face off, but when it's issues that aren't, you know, not necessarily related to his own personal career, not as much. >> cenk, that is exactly the thing that i find the most confusing about obama. here's a guy who during the election, he can run the new kind of campaign, exist in the new politics, he can get the dirty story told and also be the orator and be clean clean as a whistle up top. so he can do it all during the campaign, and then he wins the presidency. then to get it done, to push through legislation that has this kind of overwhelming popular support, he can't get it done. it's crazy to me. cenk: it's a matter of priorities mark, i'm telling you. it's the top priority for him to win, for himself personally, right? but the background check i think is a bit of an exception. i think he really did want that for his so-called legacy, as weak as i thought it was. everything else, you want me to water it down, keep 94 of the bush tax cuts and make them permanent? as long as i can take dow
on testimony or questions, rather of max baucus, a democrat we should point out up for re-election. what is his concern, john? >> whenever he goes book to montana we hear from small businesses we don't know what is going on, we don't know what the rules are, we don't know what the costs are. one woman says i have four small business, each are below the 50 threshold to cover my employees. do i have to add up and do i have to cover or don't i? there are no rules or regulations. in this mess very few companies are highering new people because the uncertainty is so great. bill: he said small businesses have no idea what to do. they have no idea what to expect. he goes on to say you need data. do you have any data? you have only given me concepts, frankly and not data. do they not have that? are they still trying to figure it out too? >> jay rockefeller, democratic senator from west begin and one. architects of obamacare, told secretary sebelius a few weeks ago this is the most complicated piece of legislation congress ever passed and so far it is not working. bill: he said if it is not done right t
.s. flag. the funding would be granted to the puerto rico elections commission to conduct objective voter education and a vote on options that would resolve puerto rico's future political status. key congressional leaders in the house and the senate, republican and democrat alike, have already issued statements of support for the president's action, calling it an appropriate response to the local referendum. . my constituents may not have a vote in a government that makes national laws, but they do have a voice and they make that voice heard loud and clear in november. a budget reflects one's priorities and values. i support the president's budget because it shows respect for the democratically express the aspirations of the u.s. citizens that reside in puerto rico and it demonstrates a clear desire to move forward on this complex but critical issue. as the budget request states, the federally sponsored vote is to be one that would result for puerto rico's political status. the only way to resolve the status is through statehood or national sovereignty. puerto rico cannot resolve its stat
, elected official, law enforcement, they really present us with a set of complex questions. and above all, though, i have to repeat that the justice department, our federal united states department of justice, has the responsibility to enforce the controlled substances act. and that remains unchanged. to -- no state, no executive can nullify a statute that's been passed by congress. as the department of justice has noted, though, federal drug enforcement resources -- just like i did as a police chief -- we prioritize and target the serious crimes. serious crimes of drug dealing, violent crime and trafficking. and let's be clear that law enforcement officials take an oath of office to uphold federal law, and they're going to continue to pursue drug traffickers and drug dealers and transnational criminal organizations, all of which weaken our communities, and they pose very serious threats to our nation. and too often discussions about marijuana, though, dwell on this issue of legalization and whether making the drug more widely and easily available -- which it would be when it becomes lega
members who voted the other way today and perhaps in the next election to challenge them. bring the issue forward to the american people. this is worth the fight. we have got to stand up to bring sensible gun safety to america. god forbid what tomorrow's victims will be, but we know they will be there. we have to do everything we can to spare another family from this agree. thank you. let me salute all of my andeagues, particularly joe the families who have lit a candle. that is a hard, hard thing to do when you go through what they went through. you do not want to get out of bed, let alone come here and argue truth to power, which you have done. it will not be forgotten. it will be helpful. mistruth, brute, political force won out over what is right. america will be a less safe place because of it. i say to the families, i say to the american people, many cannot understand what is happening here in this capital. don't give up faith. things change quickly in washington. they have changed for gay marriage. they are changing for immigration. they will change for gun safety sooner than you t
or to worship fely or to elect their leaders or to choose the future that they wanted for themselves. seen what happens if we work together and encourage , that for the better amazing spark that grows into a shining light, a spotlight on hope and progress. i have seen tears running down the faces of those that have gotten to vote in the first time in their lives. i have seen the joint in young kids who have gone to school for the first time in their lives. i have seen tears of joy in voting in the philippines where women who worked for the voting booth cast a ballot for the first time in her 70 years of life. courage -- iey, have seen the courage of -- after decades of confinement she has come out and has been able workingve and start alongside her former captors to try and build a stronger and a.eer the libyans, who fild freedom square in benghazi, first to bring down dictator and second to let the democratically elected government know of their demands. the rights these men and women struggled for reflect what we americans hold dear. they are key to our dna. they aren't exclusively american v
the public is engageed and when the public that sent elected officials to washington makes clear to the elected officials that what the evaluations are in their jobs, and in this case, whatever the state is, there's a majority in the state that's disappointed in the vote taken, if the vote was no, by a united states senator, so we, as the president did, call on the frustrated constituents to make their frustration known. >> generally, the way they do that is in election. are you waiting for the next election? >> no, i don't think it requires an election, necessarily, to bring about that change. i think that there is an opportunity for americans who are frustrated by the failure of the senate to act in a common sense way, in a way supported by the vast majority of the american people, to make their unhappiness and frustration known sooner than the next election, and, you know, there's a variety of means available to the the citizens of the country to communicate with their lawmakers and make views known. >> the background checks -- >> look, i think it's no. the president is commit
is a very thorny problem for harry reid. in pass elections he run cam panes that very much focused on his very pro-gun stance. out in nevada it is a very important issue there. now that this is coming up, and as you pointed out in the your invery we're talking about the biggest changes to gun control legislation in decades or at least 15 years now. so how harry reid comes down on this and how much he really wants to see this bill, see the light of day is still up in the air a little bit. jon: as i understand it, there are only four republican senators who have, who have signified they will vote in favor of this manchin-toomey amendment? >> yeah. and there is even talk of amending the amendment so it might collect a few more republicans but the problem with doing that is, that if you were to do that you wind up very likely losing, losing votes on the other end. people saying that it is getting watered undo too much or that it is too, that the bill is turning too pro-gun and then you still have the same problem that harry reid and joe manchin, pat toomey have now, which is not enough votes
. the fact is, they held to what they said they would do. they held an election. they created a democracy. the people who won are surprised by the folks. it did not surprise others given the base of the country. they had a democracy. they had an election. it turned over their power and went back to the barracks. they have been an important ingredient to the people of israel. right now, the gauze the piece is holding because of the relationship and the intel to intel relationship. we do not want to lose that. i would love a rigid of love to make an economic effort larger, but as the chairman knows, we work with the chairman, and others, to try to have some component of economic assistance. unless there is economic reform in egypt, unless they can meet the imf standards, unless they reach out to the opposition, unless they create stability and a capacity to invite capital back from other countries, with the sense of security created, unless those things happen, right now, giving more money would actually be not too good avail. >> thank you. >> we go to tulsa of hawaii. presenceyou for your
formed kentucky taxpayers united and in his first bid for elective office, he ran for the senate seat vacated by jim benning and one against the candidate and quickly founded the tea party caucus. boss, a group of which i may be the only member, only two times have we hadfa an december ron paul in 2011. the only other father-son team of was mitt romney and his dad, and former gov. george romney. now on to monday and mechanical matters. we are on the record, no live tweeting. c-span has agreed not to use the session for a least one hour. to ask auld like question, do the traditional thing and send me a non thready and signal and i will happily call on one and all. now that he has had to buy its cultural offer our guest the opportunity to make some comments and then move around the table. the floor is yours. >> it sounds like with all of these rules that we're going to create some news this morning. i don't know about that. >> we live in hope. >> as i was going round the room, i was thinking i was in a wedding of receiving line. if anybody feels compelled to send me a wedding gift, it h
and i don't know how you came up with this a gay al gore. >> yeah, right. if i were elected president, i would make absolutely certain that -- [ laughter ] >> stiletto heels came in men's size. [ laughter ] >> oh. that's very funny. [ laughter ] >> bill: i sort of have a feeling that al gore didn't think that was very funny. >> no i don't think he did. >> bill: i don't think he did. but he went along with it at any rate. hey, coming up dylan byars from "politico" will be joining us. we'll also be talking to boston "globe" reporter wesley lawyer to see how that city is getting back in shape, back to real life, and how did the media do reporting the events of last week up in boston. but first -- >> announcer: this is the "full court press." >> overhead lines making news on thissing monday -- >> bill: it's monday. >> yeah. >> boston red sox player david or tease gave a passionate speech to the boston coming victims. so passionate that he dropped the f bomb and it went out over live television. but the chairman of the fcc, tweeted yesterday that big papi spoke from
around the country that we as elected conservatives were elected to serve. after all they know what they are for, so why don't we? perhaps it is because it is so easy in washington to forget. in washington we debate public policy so persistently that we can lose sight of the fact that policy is our means, and they are not ends. we think we were for the court taxes or spending restraint, but those are policies we advocate. they're not what we're really four. what we're for are the good things that the bucs policies will yield to the american people. what we're really for is the kind of society that those policies would allow the american people to create. together. too oftenne idea missing from our public debate, it is that idea, together. in the last few years we conservatives seem to have abandoned words like together, compassion, and community, as if they're only possible meanings were as some sort of secret code for stateism. collective action does not only or even usually mean government action. conservatives cannot surrender the idea of community to the left. when it is the vit
know when you find him there is president-elect obama going to be a massive shootout and you don't want to see ten kids get killed on the street in the middle of that shootout. was in an excess of caution? yes. can understand why they did it? yes. i also think there was another law enforcement purpose to it. by shutting boston down, they shut off from them a lot of ways to escape. couldn't use the subways. couldn't use the buses. couldn't use the amtrak. couldn't use this or that. there was ohm one thing he could use, a car. so now you've kind of circled him pretty well. i think that's another reason. >> better to be safe than sorry. >> we are running out of time. he has a -- dana has a question. >> we're going to keep you for one more block. >> okay. >> one of the things you were talking about in the green room is that because law enforcement performed so ably in these situations that americans, as citizens, you don't have to have this as your top worry, that you can let law enforcement worry about it. >> this is a very difficult message and i think both president bush and president ob
as they become available. >>> back here at home, 65 misplaced ballots from the november election have now been found in san mateo county. they were found friday inside a storage sought at the county election's office. the chief election officer said someone had accidentally placed them inside a closed box. he says there weren't enough ballots to swing the race but is investigating why and how this happened. >>> time is now 7:20. family and friends of a man from mississippi accused of sending a letter with a deadly poison ricin to president obama, they say he struggles with mental illness. 45-year-old paul kevin curtis is charged with threatening the president, a united states senator and a judge. his wife says he is bipolar. he's written a lot online about exposing a conspiracy that he says he discovered to sell human body parts on the black market. his lawyer says curtis insists he is innocent. he is due in court later this afternoon. >>> we have a lot of serious news this morning. >> very. >> but there is a bright spot. we have sunny skies across the bay area again today. take a look at this

[inaudible] >> think he actually didn't know at that point. point. the poll said really shifted. this was a month or two before. we had actually done pretty well in the polls. some thought i wouldn't sign a pledge but i did. i wanted to be no question that i was supporting the republican nominee. i said i was going to support the nominee once my dad knowledged his nomination was over. >> senator i want to salute you to mentioning mcconnell and thoreau in the same sentence. i wanted to ask you what president of the other party do you most admire and why? >> probably grover cleveland. oh okay. >> we have lots of rules here. >> i have to ask her his -- answer his question? in my lifetime a democrat i guess kennedy was president when i was six months old. he was shot in 63 in the summer or the fall?
recipients famously called them obama phones. there is one supporter who boasted to media during the election that all minorities should support the president because he gave them free cell phones. some now propose expanding the free phone service to broadband but mccaskill says the current program is so far out of control we should scrap it and start over, not expand it. jenna? jo jim, thank you. >> reporter: yes, ma'am, the investigators are turning to the boston bomber's past as they search for answers in the deadly attacks. a look at the brother's ties to chechnya and how those could shape the progress of the investigation. >>> some families are allowed to return home after that deadly plant explosion in west, texas. the blast devastated that small community. the latest on recovery efforts there just ahead. s old t for business travelers. the act of soaring across an ocean in a three-hundred-ton rocket doesn't raise as much as an eyebrow for these veterans of the sky. however, seeing this little beauty over international waters is enough to bring a traveler to tears. we're putting the won
hispanic voters into the election threat which if history is any indicator would be a good threupbg fo thing for democrats. joe trippi a former howard dean campaign manager and fox news contributor. do you believe the immigration bill on balance would be a bigger net benefit to democratic politicians? >> i think it will benefit both parties. one of the problems that the republicans have had is that their opposition to immigration reform to reaching a compromise has really hurt them in the latino and hispanic communities. it's one of the reasons that after george bush got 4 4% of their votes in 2008 -- swore, excus2004, excuse me. the hispanic support has been declining nationwide. finding a compromise would help republicans start to talk to hispanics. they are much morey lidge justly -- they are a very religious community. there are tkpwrourpbdz on values and other things that republic republicans could talk to the hispanic community and actually start winning their votes again as george bush had reached out to them. in the very beginning as the people become citizens and are eligible
this up at this stage in the game. we're supposed to be loving this, heading into the midterm elections, this is a problem. that's why we get reactions when things like bombings happen because i think the democrats are desperate right now. it's falling apart. >> i got to tell youssef mejri -- you were preaching from the same book. this is not 2010. we voted on obama care. >> she's right. >> she's right. >> we voted for it, but as it's implemented, is it great? >> doo i think it's great? the fact my kid -- >> do you think it's great the way it's implemented and americans like what they see? >> they like the fact when they go to a well visit, there's no money. the fact they keep your kids on the insurance longer, yes, and in 2014, when the physical parts of it are implemented -- we'll have that discussion. obviously, honestly, liz, they came back and waived the two factors. like it or not like it, voted on it last november and voted they liked it. we would have had romney president. >> out of time. bell rings, round whatever it is. [laughter] thank you very much. >> thanks so much. >> sim
, the votes that were cast. votes have consequences just as elections do, and the people of america will remember our job now is to raise awareness, spread the rage that we feel, raise the rage and organize and enable and empower citizens to be heard and heeded by this body, whether in the next election or before then, and my hope is that it will be before then because we must act before the next election, and that action is an opportunity, a historic moment that we must seize. not everyone in this body turned its back on the victims of newtown or on this cause yesterday, and there were genuine profiles in courage on this floor in this body. first and foremost, senator manchin who led the fight on background checks and forged a compromise that should have won the day. and republicans who chose to buck their own leadership and follow their hearts and consciences, senators mccain, collins, kirk and toomey. the american people will thank you. and there are democrats who took some tough votes. tough votes particularly for their states. and i want to thank senators hagan, casey, landrieu
